Pleasant Poppies Swap Card

Happy Monday!!

Once a month, I have the opportunity to swap cards with some very talented demonstrator's across Canada!! I love receiving their cards in the mail, as it's a nice surprise when you open up the mailbox!

Our theme for last month was the New Incolours. My talented friend Christine created this fabulous card using the Pleasant Popplies stamp set.

She used her aqua painters with watercolour paper to create her unique background, then colour the flowers with Hello Honey and Blackberry Bliss ink. The stem were coloured with Mossy Meadow ink.

I love how she used the Tangelo Twist ribbon to add a splash of colour to her card. Beautiful card Christine!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

 


By The Tide Birthday Card

Happy Monday!

I'm so happy this stamp set is carrying over to the next catalogue. This set is perfect for thinking of you cards, birthdays, thank you and just because cards!

My card today was created by my good friend Mary Beth! She had made this card for our Masculine Theme for our True North Swapper Groups. I love how she used the Speech Bubble framelits to make it look like the fish is talking!!

Simple Stems Get Well Card

Hello,

Last month in our True North Swap, we had received this super cute card from fellow demonstrator  Catherine. I was a little stump with trying to figure out what stamp set she used, and I just have to ask her...the answer was Simple Stems!! I love how she used the flower to create germs on this get well card!! Thanks for the fun inspiration Catherine!!!

I sure you are trying to figure out what stamp set this is so I thought I would share the image with you. Do you see the germ from the one flower? OMG, what a brilliant idea!!

Happy Day Birthday Card

Happy Day!

Finally hockey life has slowed down, we can finally relax and I can get back to posting! The last two weeks have been INSANE as we were out every night and going two different directions. Sadly Alison's team is all done for the season, and Emily's team won so they move onto the next round. So at the most we will only have two more weeks of hockey. I will keep you posted!!

Last month for our True North Swap group, our theme was Occasions Mini. We could use anything in the catalogue to create our card. I decided to use my Favourite Starburst Sayings Bundle and the gorgeous Hardwood stamp to create my card.

I stamped the Hardwood background with Soft Suede ink onto Pool Party card stock. I love how it turned out!! Makes me thing of the old wood barn fences!

Halloween Swap Card

Happy Monday!

We had a blast this past weekend at our annual Scrap and Crop Weekend Event. The room was filled with ambitious ladies that got right down to working on their project whether it was cards, layouts, 3D or craft show items to sell. They scrapped till the room closed which was midnight each night.

When I got yesterday afternoon, I had a hour and half nap, I guess I was tired!! I hope you can attend the next one in the Spring with us!!

Since Halloween is only a few days away, I thought I would share some Halloween Swaps with you. My swap card today is from my friend Catherine Sanders!

I love how she used Circles to highlight the candies on the card since that is what Halloween is all about.
